Rat Terrier
Brown / Chocolate
This is Nelson a 6-month-old 13-lb mix of questionable origin. The scanner said that he is a mix of rat terrier and Catahoula, and we dont know about his breeding but we do know he is very cute and sweet. He was found with his 4 siblings when they were about 4 weeks old, alone and scared in a parking lot, so someone probably didnt want puppies and just dumped them there. While it is very sad that they had to spend even a minute on their own, we are happy that we can now make them available for adoption to go to loving homes. All the pups are crate trained, and trained to potty on pads. They are calm, sweet, and loving. 

I have to tell you that we may have missed the mark with him. Perhaps we should have called him Sherlock - I mean, look at that face! Cant you just imagine him with that little Sherlock Holmes hat on, holding a pipe, sniffing out clues? Maybe he could find his new family all on his own? I think he could. Just in case though, you want to fill out an application on him! If you are interested in adopting, please go there

Nelson will come to you neutered and fully vetted.
